It’s time to choose your next sedan. Will you get behind the wheel of the 2023 Toyota Corolla or the Nissan Sentra?
If you’re unsure of the answer, we can help. Our team at Arlington Toyota put these two compact cars to the test to see which one has the efficiency and amenities your drives call for near Palatine, Arlington Heights, and Rolling Meadows, IL!
If you lead an active lifestyle, you need a set of wheels that can roll with the punches and keep up with you. Both the Corolla and the Sentra prove to have the spirit you’re looking for thanks to their spry engines. Which sedan will help you go the distance, though?
When you’re looking for a new commuter car, you want to know your selected model has the efficiency needed to keep you on the road longer. You’re sure to cruise right past the gas station with any of the two motor options in the 2023 Toyota Corolla:
The Nissan Sentra only has one powertrain, but it’s very efficient as well with an EPA-estimated 29 city/39 highway MPG. However, if you want to keep on driving without visiting gas stations as often, the Corolla is the cruiser to choose.
Want to make the most of your fuel tank? The Toyota Corolla is available as a hybrid! This powertrain combines a gas-powered engine with a battery. With two power sources, you can stay away from the pump for longer, and when using the standard Eco drive mode, optimize the Corolla Hybrid’s efficiency.
The Nissan Sentra is only available as a gas-powered model, which makes it a great choice for those who prioritize velocity over efficiency. However, if you want to leave the pump in the dust, choose the Toyota.
The Toyota Corolla and the Nissan Sentra want to ensure you have the smoothest ride possible. After all, when you have a long commute ahead of you, you want the miles to fly by. Which sedan makes the driver’s seat feel like your personal throne, though?
With such great MPG keeping you on the road and away from the pump longer, it’s important for your vehicle to have a refined and cozy cabin. Cold-weather rides will be much more enjoyable in these sedans—even when the weather hits hard—thanks to available heated front seats.
You’ll also have a choice of upholstery in either model to match your comfort standards. A leather-trimmed steering wheel is also available for both, so you can enjoy a fully premium experience.
When it comes to year-round comfort, though, you may prefer the 2023 Toyota Corolla. It’s available with an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat to provide an array of seating positions. This allows you to find your ideal comfort level to stay cozy throughout your daily treks.
Finding the most supportive position may be a bit harder in the Nissan Sentra since only a 6-way power-adjustable driver’s seat is available.
Drivers want to feel safe and secure during their travels, and driver-assistive technologies are designed to give you peace of mind out on the road. When you can relax in the driver’s seat, you can drive confidently.
The Toyota Corolla comes standardly equipped with Toyota Safety Sense™ 3.0. This suite of driver-assistive tech provides comprehensive coverage from unexpected situations. These features come in every Corolla, so you can trust it with the safety of you and your passengers:
The Nissan Sentra also offers driver-assistive technology, but not all the features come standard to match the Corolla. Its Intelligent Cruise Control is only available at higher trim levels, so you might miss out on this convenient system.
A unique feature to the Toyota Corolla’s safety suite is Proactive Driving Assist. This feature combines several driver-assistance aids to provide you with expert guidance on the road. It can provide gentle braking into curves or steering support in certain scenarios.
Although the Sentra’s Safety Shield® 360 suite will easily keep you safe, only the Corolla keeps an eye out for any twists and turns in the road and helps you act accordingly—literally.
It’s been a tight competition, but the 2023 Toyota Corolla pulls ahead of the Nissan Sentra in terms of efficiency, safety, and comfort.
To come see the winning sedan for yourself, stop on by Arlington Toyota. We’re excited to show our neighbors near Palatine, Arlington Heights, and Rolling Meadows, IL, the Corolla in action!
